Your wheels: Hi Webby, here is my 2012 MINI Cooper. Fun little car! Carol
They sure got longer over the years! My first car, in 1971, was a Mini Cooper. It had only been driven by a little old lady before I bought it. Yeah, right. I learned rebuilding the engine before I ever got a speeding ticket. Once I had it working, the way it should, it was a lot of fun. It was definitely not designed for the Yukon, though. It required scraping the inside of the windshield until late winter. Send me pictures of YOUR wheels, or dream wheels! Have FUN! DearWebby

Five Belgians in an Audi Quattro arrive at the French border. The French Customs agent stops them and tells them: "It's illegal to put 5 people in a Quattro." "Oh, no, Quattro is just the name of the automobile. Look at the papers: this car is designed to carry 5 persons." "You can't pull that one on me," replies the French customs agent. "Quattro means 4!" "Oh, you are so stupid! Call your supervisor over!" "He can't come. He's busy with the 2 guys in the Fiat Uno."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Antonio Younger, 39, Tulsa, Oklahoma Wanted Sex Offender Caught Wearing Wig And Sharpie Marker Eyebrows Reported by The Weekly Vice Antonio Younger, a 39-year-old convicted sex offender, was jailed while wearing a wig and sharpie marker eyebrows after Tulsa Police picked him up on a warrant for failing to register as a sex offender. According to Tulsa Police, Younger was arrested during a traffic stop in which he was found sporting a wig and sharpie marker eyebrows. Investigators say the warrant had been issued back in July 2011 when he failed to register as a sex offender or notify authorities of his whereabouts following his release from prison. According to court records, Younger served 5 years of a 9-year prison sentenced after he was convicted of first-degree rape and intimidating a witness. Upon his release, Younger was ordered to register as a sex offender and notify authorities within 3 days anytime he had a change of address. Younger apparently thought wearing a wig for the rest of his life would be a far easier task to deal with. He was booked into the Tulsa County Jail and charged with failing to register with authorities (as required by provisions of the sex offender registration act.) He remains held in lieu of $5,000 bond. Can't fool that face-recognition software with a Mark-All! Tech Support Pits From: Alex Re: Tripod Bolt Dear Webby, I lent out my tripod and it came back with the bolt, that holds the camera, missing. My Camera is a Canon Powershot. What kind of bolt is required to hold it? Alex Dear Betty Dear Alex 99.9% of all cameras take a standard 1/4" x 20 (1/4" coarse) bolt. With some searching around small hardware stores you should be able to find a wing-bolt. If not, simply glue a wing-nut onto the bolt head with 2-hour epoxy. Proper tripod bolts have a tiny groove and a circlip (C-shaped washer) to holt it from falling out. If you don't have a lathe, you can mark where that groove should be with a felt marker, and then cut it with a hack-saw or key file. You can get circlips at better hardware stores and automotive parts stores. Normally the bolt just holds the camera down onto the turret. If the camera is supposed to turn and swivel on the bolt, that that piece of junk and heave it into a dumpster. It is a waste of time. With any half decent tripod, the turret, that holds the camera, turns in a tall sleeve, that can be tightened. The taller the sleeve, the better. Have FUN! DearWebby

A little boy who is rushing out of the house pauses in front of his father. "Dad," the boy says, "I'm late for football practice. Would you please do my homework for me?" "Son, it just wouldn't be right," his father says. "That's okay," the little fellow says. "You could at least give it a try, couldn't you?"
